Tiger is slower on 512 than Panther was on 256; even after nuking all widgets from Dashboard and not using Safari and other recommendations.

For those of you interested in iChat, it is still crap as far as I can see.
Since 10.4 was released, the iChat Agent has always been "not responding" (launch activity monitor, it will flash in red before your eyes).
This is unacceptable, Apple software still not functional after TWO updates.
I have been meaning to use it with an encryption proxy (OTR), I won't even bother if this thing can't even keep fro crashing. I'll stick with Adium.

I've had few issues with Tiger 10.4.1. In fact, it's been the most stable and speedy OS X ever. However, I had one issue on only one of my Macs that was quite odd, which was when I connected to a server via "Recent Servers" in the Apple Menu, the server would connect AND iTunes would launch! And if I tried to click on a folder in the Dock, the folder wouldn't appear but DVD Player would launch! Aren't those weird bugs?!?!

That's all fixed now with 10.4.2, and so far everything including Dashboard seems to be working fine (on one Mac, haven't done the others yet).

Glad to see this is out. Hopefully it fixes my issues, 10.4.1 has been the worst version of OSX I have used. Safari runs worse then ever and has to be restarted daily (gets up to eating 650+meg of ram fast), dashboard has completely died on me, and the box has just lost it's responsiveness.

Also hope it fixes the DNG file format issues, and maybe just maybe fixed the USB issues so my iPod will mount more often then once in 10 tries (half of which successful crash itunes).

Bah, well, running 10.4.2 now, and haven't had it going more an hour, and have only been running one safari window and it's already up to 100 meg of ram usage, virtual is up to 250 megs. What the heck is wrong with apple, why can't they fix their stinking browser already.

The widget manager is nice, the widgets are responding again and seam to work. Still would like to see them not be using ~19 meg each.

Real Memory was at 822 meg, virtual was over a gig.

Soon as I started using it again the ram usage dropped back down to 661 meg of real memory (odd). But thats back to where it normal goes to. I've never seen it get up to 822 before.

Anyrate, since later versions of Panther, the memory leaking I get from Safari has grown with every update.

Firefox: 54.1MB real, 421.05MB virtual
Internet Explorer: 32.24MB real, 238.88MB virtual

Although not conclusive by any means, Safari doesn't look too bad.

BTW: On my machine that has 1GB ram, Mac OS X allocates 7.65GB of virtual memory. Hence, I don't think we have too much to worry about.

If you never activate it, it will never run. Dashboard only allocates rescources when you activate it. Drag the icon out of the Dock and thats it.

Why do people keep complaining about the dock? It's just like any other App, it doesn't allocate any rescources until you intentionally run it.

Just because an app has a lot of memory assigned to it, it does not necessarily mean that there are memory leaks.

Remember, Mac OS X is built on-top of UNIX. UNIX systems are designed to use the system's resources to their fullest. This includes memory. I'm sure that if another app required more memory, then Safari's allocation would drop (given allocation >= memory in use).

Yep, looks like this is it, the update that finally makes the system stable and useful, for me at least.

I admit, I'd just ran 10.4.1 for 3 days actually, but it was noticeably slower than 10.3.9, and this after a clean install. My experience with 10.4.1 was not pleasant at all on a 867 mhz 256 mb PB. However, this update so far seems to have gotten the system quite faster and it looks they finally killed that memory eating monster that got loose on their code before.

I have been waiting with abated breath for this release since the first couple of versions of Tiger had too many bugs for my taste.

10.4.2 is the release that should of been the gold master. Yes, there are still bugs, but Tiger appears to be usable now.

My hope is Apple still keeps the petal to the medal and bangs out the bugs so that 10.4.3 is the release where 99% of the people don't see any issues.

Tiger is a great OS, and it just needs one more serious bug fixing patch.

I hope it fixes a bug in iPhoto that has annoyed me [but I'll try the dumping the prefs first].

My virtual memory is at 8.something up to 10 gigs, and I have 1 gig of RAM.

10.3.9 IMHO had a lot more spunk. When the kinks are ironed out of this edition I'll wait until Leopard reaches 10.5.3 before upgrading. They boys and girls in Cupertino are meeting their deadlines too and then people like to ship some stuff that "we'll fix in the patch".

Now, this is rumour only, so take it with a cup of salt; from what I have heard, one of the things holding back Quartz 2D extreme is the font rendering side, and the inconsistancies when 2D extreme is enabled and disabled - maybe what you have noticed is part of them fixing up those problems - I don't know.

Just as a side issue, it would be nice if Apple were a little more open like SUN, and allow their employees to blog and inform users about what is happening, and why a certain feature isn't enabled by default.

I downloaded the update at 415 this morning and I haven't really seen too much difference, other than the fact that it now takes about 15 seconds longer to boot up. I'm running a Imac flatpanel 800 with 768MB ram and it sure seems snappy. But then again, I upgraded straight from 10.1 to Tiger. So I can't really comment about the speed of 10.3 but it was like a hardware upgrade for real.

I updated my PB 1.67 GHz 1 GB RAM yesterday to 10.4.2 from 10.4 (from a clean archive and install). iChat had been giving me lots of problems with connections, blurriness, etc. and I have a pretty fast broadband connection (6Mbps/down 384Kbps/up). Anyway, with 10.4.2, everything seems to work great. And I have my firewall on, in stealth mode, with no special ports open for iChat. Note: I am using the AOL IM option in iChat. Overall, framerate is higher, picture quality is up, and connections have been flawless.

Mail fixed a problem with quote levels.

Previously you could not increase or decrease quote levels unless you were replying a message. Now the option is enabled for mails created from scratch.

Working great on my iMac DV, G3 400, 256 megs ram.
Things seem to be a little bit quicker than in 10.3.9, only found 1 bug so far, when mounting a network folder, I accidently hit f12, which brought up a clock widget, I closed the widget, and I could not log into the network share. Had to close out the login completely and remount it. But I'm thinking that might be more of a lack of memory bug.
